Benefits of Chiropractic

Early Doctor of Chiropractics believed that subluxations were the cause of all disease. Today, the profession understands much more clearly the multifactorial nature of health and illness.  Yet, while subluxations may not be the sole cause of a given disease, they are still a major predisposing factor because they prevent the nervous system from working optimally to help keep the body healthy. By correcting vertebral subluxations, the chiropractic adjustment can help maintain the overall health of the nervous system and the body's organs.

            Chiropractic adjustments are also helpful in preventing everyday wear and tear on joints and ligaments by maintaining the proper mobility of the joints. It can also help decrease accumulation of scar formation after serious injury, thus preventing later weakness or stiffness of the affected joints. During a chiropractic session, if localized areas of dysfunction are apparent, treatment will usually focus on increasing spinal motion. This can be accomplished through the use of a combination of touch, active motion (having the patient bend or stretch in pre­cise ways), and passive movement (in which the chiro­practic physician assists the patient) in order to initiate a specific adjustment.

One of the most common complaints from patients seeking chiropractic care is low-back pain. In a two-year study by Britain's Medical Research Council, chiropractic treatment was found more effective than hospital outpatient care for lowback pain.  Years later, those patients treated with chiropractic care continued to suffer less pain than those treated by medical doctors.[1]  Studies conducted by the Florida Department of Labor and the Rand Corporation, in Los Angeles, California, came to similar conclusions.[2]  Along with these landmark studies, there is also a general shift of attitude within the med­ical community that supports chiropractic's new role and acknowledges the vital importance of the nervous sys­tem in relation to the normal functioning and relative health of the body.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic is also an effective treatment for neck injuries, whiplash, scoliosis (curvature of the spine), carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress disorders, certain sports injuries (particularly those that limit range of motion), and as an aid for dealing with the physiological changes experienced by women during and after pregnancy.[3]  Patients visiting chiropractic physicians often discover that the underlying causes of their illnesses are not what they expected them to be.

Doctor of Chiropractic has also been successful in treating various disturbances of the body, including peripheral joint injuries (hands, knees, elbows, hips, shoulders), sprains, arthritis, bursitis, and menstrual difficulties. Evidence also shows that chiropractic adjustment combined with proper nutrition can improve and, in some cases, reverse osteoarthritis.[4]  Just as significantly, research shows that the long term benefits of reg­ular chiropractic care helps to maintain the health of the body as we age and prevent decline in physical capabilities among the elderly.
